  • Grading System

    I was wondering how the grades are determined. What does it mean if you scored a 7 for example? I think someone may have answered this a while back but I forget their answer and was wondering.

    The passmark is set first (say 24 out of 40). Then, for every 10% greater/less than the pass mark, you receive 1 more/less than 6. So, for a passmark of 24 out of 40:

    [0,12) = 0
    [12, 14.4) = 1
    [14.4, 16.8) = 2
    [16.8, 19.2) = 3
    [19.2, 21.6) = 4
    [21.6, 24) = 5
    [24, 26.4) = 6
    [26.4, 28.8) = 7
    [28.8, 31.2) = 8
    [31.2, 33.6) = 9
    [33.6, 40] = 10

        Why can't they just tell us our percentage and finished?
        It makes both their job easier and our job easier!

          Yeah, there are quite a few things that can be done to improve with transparency in this area. The CAS differs from the SOA here - for CAS 3, candidates get the original exam mailed back to them, whereas SOA exams are occasionally released.

          It would be good to get our exam booklets back, or get more information regarding our results, but for now, just keep trying to pass the exams.
